Erlanger Health System (Chattanooga, Tenn.), a non-profit, academic medical center affiliated with the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, has completed a surgical center expansion and new patient tower construction at Erlanger East Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn.

The project, which was completed one month ahead of schedule, includes four new operating rooms, a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) expansion, a pre- and post-op expansion, a new cardiovascular interventional radiology suite, and renovations to the reception and administrative areas.

The new 58-bed patient tower includes a six-bed intensive care unit, larger, modern patient rooms, and expanded food service operations. Outside, the community can enjoy a campus-wide walking trail, putting green, and playground.

The project team included McCarthy Building Companies (contractor) and HKS Architects, Inc. (Dallas; architecture firm).
